Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Ecklund over at Hockey Buzz... yes I know, but this isn't a trade rumor.. maybe he'll get this one right.
He's talking about why he thinks the Heritage Classic may not happen next year.
"Well there is BIG rumor out there tonight that Canada will see its first entry into the Winter Classic in 2012. The rumor is the NHL will try to go for the attendance record on January 1, 2012 when the Winter Classic heads to U of Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan for an original 6 matchup between the Red Wings and Maple Leafs in front of the largest crowd to watch a live hockey game. Michigan Stadium has an official capacity of 109,901. This past December, Michigan and Michigan State set the record for a crowd watching live hockey as 104,173 fans packed Michigan Stadium."
There have been other rumors as well.. including an Fanhouse article about a possible Rangers-Wings game at the BH.
Rumors are rumors... but what else is going on today?
